there is a really cool article on tomshardware.com that has benches and everything. it seems like the AMD64 FX55 is still kind in games, but the intel 600 series beats AMD in pretty much everything else except MP3 encoding.

even though the new intels are 64bit, the arcitecture between intell and AMD still remains different, so AMD will probably still perform better gaming wise.

Wow, that's quite impressive, I was on newegg earlier today and noticed a bunch of 600 series Intel processors and was wondering where they hell they all came from.

AMD still has a few clear advantages over the Intel 64 bit processors, they still seem to be using the hot prescott cores so overclocking could be a problem, and AMD still has the socket 939 dual core futureproofing, whereas the Intel processors on Socket T do not.

The 2MB L2 cache looks quite appealing though, perhaps I will have to reconsider my next processor choice...

Ars Technica article on P4 600s

http://tinyurl.com/725rq

Quote:
Idle and stress temperatures are circa 10ΒΊ Celsius lower than the 500 series. To put that in perspective, the P4 660 is as hot in its stress state as the P4 560 is when idle.
